Calling all chess players!

Clitheroe Chess Club needs you. New players are always welcome to strengthen the squad. The A team recently travelled to Blackburn to face Crusaders C in their second fixture in the second division of the North East Lancs chess league.

There were wins for Ray Sutcliffe, Keith Melling and David Scorer with draws for Phil Titterington and David Buckell which gave Clitheroe a 4- 1 winning scoreline.

The result also means no Clitheroe player has yet been defeated in the second division this season. Unfortunately this does not mean that Clitheroe have an invincible team but illustrates the big difference in levels of play between the first and second division.

The club is still looking to strengthen the squad and new players are welcome to attend the weekly Tuesday meetings from 7-30pm at the Swan and Royal Hotel or phone Eric on 01200 423364 for more details.
